With the recovery in the number of cases, we are hoping that things may get better and things will start to open up. However, businesses are still in ambiguity. Since the second wave took us all by surprise and came after we let our guard down, people are very cautious. With reports of a possible third wave, nobody wants to take any chances.
So then, how will the talent acquisition strategy change in India? What will be different in terms of industries attracting the best talent?
The topic of the first session at the The Great HR Debate, Talent Special —‘When the dust settles, how will organisations attract the best talent?’ — was aptly chosen to help answer these questions.
The debaters part of this session were Paneesh Rao, chief people officer, Mindtree; Lokendra Sethi, VP & HR lead India, DXC Technology; Manu Wadhwa, CHRO, Sony Pictures and Maneesha Jha Thakur, president & CHRO, Emami putting forth their views.
